Veg Elected To Parliament

Vegetarian Caroline Lucas becomes the first Green Party candidate elected to Parliament.

On May 6, British voters in Brighton Pavilion elected Caroline Lucas, leader of the Green Party of England, as its Member of Parliament, making Lucas the first member of her party to hold a seat. Lucas, an outspoken vegetarian, defeated Labour Party candidate Nancy Platts by more than 1,000 votes, and the election drew record numbers of Green Party candidates in England and Wales. Along with living a meat-free lifestyle, Lucas promotes green and sustainable alternatives to economic issues. In a country traditionally dominated by a two-party system, Lucas' historic victory signals a new public demand for a more innovative approach to politics.
